Instagram just rolled out a new feature – Questions!
I know what you must be thinking… What’s the difference? Isn’t it the same as direct message (DM)? 🙄
Basically ladies, Instagram wants to make it easier for you to slide into the user’s DMs! We here at Nimble foresee that this new feature would be maximized and be fully taken advantage of. This just opens up a new communicating channel on Instagram itself.
Okay but before that, here’s the absolutely-mandatory-basics on how to use it.
So, what’s the big hoo-haa? What’s the main difference between DMs and polling?
The most obvious reason is YOU, as a business owner, get to approach your followers and fans FIRST to start sending you questions or feedback! Sure, it may be possible for you to start DM-ing your followers one-by-one to find out what they would like to see next, but is it feasible? Is it effective? Heck no!
Although not everyone will reply, nor will they give you the answers you seek, it’s a start. And we always have to start somewhere, don’t we ladies? Remember, Instagram always have us business owners in mind when they roll out new features like this. It truly adds a personal touch for your business, so start using the questions feature Lady Bosses! It’s like you’re inviting them in for a meeting or a chat, but virtual and IMMEDIATE.
(okay… not exactly immediate but at least we’re given the 24h slot before it disappears)!
So goodbye ask.fm, goodbye sarahah and HELLO QUESTIONS!
